Microsoft spokesman Tom Pilla on Tuesday confirmed with iPod Observer that his company initiated the creation of the iPod packaging parody video that was first reported last month. "It was an internal-only video clip commissioned by our packaging [team] to humorously highlight the challenges we have faced RE: packaging and to educate marketers here about the pitfalls of packaging/branding," he said via e-mail.
Mr. Pilla noted: "While MS did not release the video, it's natural to share funny things with friends. So while we didn't publicly share the video, it was shared with appropriate teams internally. We're happy to see others enjoy the laugh as well."

They've spelt iPod as "I-pod"
They've illustrated it with the 1st Gen iPod
Although, if it wasn't Apple, but Microsoft, that had created the iPod, it'd more than likely called the "XPod",
and the accompanying music jukebox software would probably be called "WinTunes", rather than iTunes!
